Party People (Posted on 2012-12-25) Difficulty: 2 of 5
At the Party:
  • There were 9 men and children.
  • There were 2 more women than children
  • The number of different man-woman couples possible was 24. Note that if there were 7 men and 5 women, then there would have been 35 man-woman couples possible.
Also, of the three groups - men, women and children - at the party:
  • There were 4 of one group.
  • There were 6 of one group.
  • There were 8 of one group.
Exactly one of the above 6 statements is false.

Which one of the above statements is false? Also, how many men, women and children are there at the party?
